In some cases, you may want to start a group of load test scenarios at the same time. For example, you may want to run multiple scenarios every time you roll out a new feature or make other changes on the target website.

To start load tests simultaneously, you can configure the load tests individually and schedule when to run tests within the 24-hour window as described in Concurrent Load Test Execution. You can also start multiple test scenarios immediately without pre-scheduling. In the following sections, we will detail how to organize several load test scenarios into Stress Setup Groups and configure group test runs.

Check our Web API Reference for operations with Group Test.

To organize several load test scenarios into a group, select the tests in the Test Manager list and click the Run button at the top of the list.

In the Stress Setup Group list, you can select a test scenario from the group to edit, or remove, by clicking the related icons.

If you changed any of the test scenario settings, refresh the Stress Setup Group page to apply new settings to the group.

Depending on your specific subscription plan, you can find the total cost or resources required to execute the group test in the group summary at the bottom of the page.

To set up group test run, click Continue and select to Start Test Now or Start Test Later to start group execution at a specific time within the 24-hour window.

We will not charge you for stopping the scheduled group test if the execution process has not been started (the Scheduled status). However, if LIs have been started (the Starting Load Injectors status) the group test price (or resources) will be charged and will not be refunded.

Pulling Reports for Tests Run in a Group

Load test results are available for each individual test in a group. There are two ways to pull the reports for the tests executed in a group.

The first way is to pull a stand-alone report from the Test Manager list for each individual test started in the group, as usual (the Actions menu > History > Report).

The second option is to pull a report for a single test included in the stress setup group. Then, from the Report page, you can pull the reports of other tests that were started simultaneously with the current one. You can find the list of the tests in the drop-down at the top of the page. To view a test results, simply click the test name in the list and the corresponding report will be opened in a new browser window.
